Ryan Academy Middle School Information
Welcome to the middle school English and social studies academic page. On this page you will find a digital copy of the spelling lists for 5th-8th grade, as well as information regarding quizzes, tests, etc. This page will be updated once a week (usually on a Monday or Friday, with the exception of holidays/school breaks). Please note that most of the information on this page will also be written in student planners, which are updated on a daily basis.
Study guides for social studies will be sent home with students in a paper format. If your student loses a study guide, it is his/her responsibility to ask for another copy as soon as possible (if a student loses their study guide the night before a quiz/test it may be too late for them to receive another copy). Some study guides may also be available digitally, depending on the content. I recommend that students begin studying for quizzes/tests as soon as possible. By doing this, students will have ample time to study and ask any questions that they may have during class.
Students will always receive a minimum of 2 days to study for a quiz/test, but will often receive more time (the only exceptions are quizzes/tests that are not able to be studied for ahead of time, such as reading quizzes, etc.). For example, a student will not be given a study guide on a Monday and asked to take a test the next day (Tuesday). For a study guide given out on a Monday, the earliest a student would have a quiz/test would be Wednesday of that week.
